Under this challenge, he is urging all countrymen to wear the Indian traditional dress on 15th August.

Shikhar Dhawan happily accepted the challenge and posted the video on Instagram. He further nominated Indian Bollywood actor Rajkumar Rao for the challenge.



In the first test match, Kohli scored 149 and 51 runs in the two innings respectively. Unfortunately, none of the other batsmen could reach a mark of 30 runs individually.

His innings was full of perfect determination and courage and one he would rate very high in his set of centuries.

Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan managed to score 26 runs in 46 balls,13 runs in 24 balls in the two innings respectively. It would be interesting to note if the Indian opener bounces back in the next Test.
